Musings About Information Security, Information Warfare, and Cybercrime

We live in an age where more and more intimate details about our lives
is stored in a multitude of digital devices -- not just databases of
information collected by businesses who want to target their marketing
efforts, but by us ourselves who race to put this information on our
social networking site, our Web pages, our Twitter pages, and devices
that reside on our hips or in our purses. This talk will discuss some
of the growing threats to the control of our private information, how
individuals add to their own risk, and how we professionals often
exacerbate the problem with our methods and processes.
